In an amazing moment on Monday shared on social media by The Young and the Restless star Greg Rikaart (Kevin), the actor revealed he has become a father!

Rikaart took to his Instagram with a photo of himself alongside his husband, TV writer Robert Sudduth, and the new addition to their family, Montgomery Argo Rikaart-Sudduth.

Greg shared his joy with the world with his post:  “We fight hate, fear, bigotry, homophobia and injustice in the world with love, intellect and enlightenment. In the truest and most pure definitions of the latter words, it is with full hearts that Rob and I take great pride in introducing our son, Montgomery Argo Rikaart-Sudduth.   He was born in Roseville, CA at 5:01pm on 6/12/16. He is light and love and magic. Monte, Rob, myself and Marcela, our trooper of a surrogate, are all doing fantastic.”

Send your congratulations and well-wishes to Greg and Robert in the comment section below!

    Wow, wonderful news Greg. I hope you and Robert enjoy your bundle of joy. Congrats and God bless. I am getting married, to my boyfriend in 2 weeks. I am nervous, we have had our ups and downs. I came out of the closet 2 years ago, I am comfortable with myself and love my soon to be husband very much. I am 30 years old, and soon to be husband is 32 years old. To the tragedy in Orlando Florida, let’s pray for the family of the victims. We are all devasted in what happened on Sunday. Amen. I live in Vancouver BC Canada. We have friends all over the united States. This tragedy has hit all of us. We are all praying and thinking of the familys. Amen.

      Celia, you and so many here have been so gracious — it is so refreshing. And, as you mentioned elsewhere in reply to me, I don’t have any patience for Dark Ages-thinking or intolerance. Take care, Friend!

      Celia,

      More and more, I get TOTALLY ANGRY whenever I read articles about or see news reports on TV about certain countries condemning gay people!!!!! Beyond sad.

      Later, my friend.

    A birth of a child always instills hope and after the events of last few days, a little hope is always welcome. Praying when this child is a man the world has become a kinder and gentler place for all.

    I am truly shocked to know this actor Greg Rikaart is actually gay…. He’s a man that any woman would desire to have as an husband, but hearing of him being gay it’s a shock to me. My country Jamaica doesn’t support gays at all.

      June 14, 2016 at 9:59 am

      Well, no, I wouldn’t want to have him as a husband as he doesn’t ‘like’ women. 😉 Anyway, that’s why it’s called acting! 🙂

    • Jamesj75

      June 16, 2016 at 2:18 pm

      Casey, I wish you’d clarify your remarks — for your own sake. I can’t tell whether you agree or disagree with your “country Jamaica.” Thanks.

      • Celia

        June 16, 2016 at 5:03 pm

        I don’t know what’s worse, James….living in the Dark Ages or intolerance….or do they cancel each other out?????
        I wish I understood Casey’s point?
        WOW!! Later, my friend.

        James…it seems to me that Casey lives in the Dark Ages (or whatever). Very, very sad.

        Later, Brother.

    For years I’ve thought of Greg Rikaart as the ideal man: talented, funny, clearly compassionate and with a strong social conscience. It also doesn’t hurt that he’s one of the few actors who know how to wear clothes or that he has a killer smile and gorgeous hair. I’m glad he’s happy and has someone who appreciates him and they can share their love with a very blessed child. At least something good happened this week!

OLTL Alum Renee Elise Goldsberry On Performing Her Showstopper “Satisfied” In ‘Hamilton’ Premiering On Disney+ Today

We loved her as Evangeline Williamson on One Life to Live, and the Broadway world loved her in her Tony Award-winning role as Angelica Schuyler in the musical Hamilton, which today bows on the filmed version on Disney+.    Of course, we are talking about the fabulous Renee Elise Goldsberry who has talent abounds.

In Hamilton, Goldsberry performs a showstopper “Satisfied” as Angelica makes the ultimate sacrifice giving up the man she loves Hamilton played by Lin-Manuel Miranda) to her sister for her sister, Eliza’s (Phillipa Soo) happiness.

Now taking the version of this memorable moment in the theatre and bringing it to life on film also makes for an exciting performance and piece of creative work.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times out today, Renee talks about executing this number in the show just right: “There are things that are technically challenging about that number: on top of the words, there’s the movement and the fact that we’re doing the previous number in reverse the whole time. It was a lot of things to juggle, but that was never hard, that was all intellectual. Even the rap was relatively easy. The most challenging part to sing is that final toast.This is an extremely well-written song. Every word is crafted to analytically take this woman on an emotional, life-altering decision for these three lives. That decision was such a monumentally painful and beautiful thing to do that by the time I’d get to that moment in which she makes that decision, I was so devastated that it was hard to sing that toast. She’s conflicted because, clearly, she wants to stay around this guy, she recognizes his brilliance, but she gets that Eliza is the one. So I imagine this woman having to give this toast to this community, in spite of the pain she felt.I was always worried that somehow or another, I wouldn’t be able to live up to the brilliance of the end of that song because emotionally, I was just trying to manage it. It took me maybe until Broadway to feel OK about it.”

When asked how she felt about seeing “Satisfied” in the movie version of Hamilton available everywhere Friday on Disney+, Goldsberry added: :Seeing it from the audience’s point of view for the first time, I realized there was a whole ‘nother level of storytelling that was going on, separate from me. I mean, Howell Binkley’s lighting design!  And Andy Blankenbuehler’s brilliant choreography, which I could always only see in my peripheral vision. It’s a huge number with the entire company onstage just killing it and basically turning back time with their bodies, and I’m standing in the middle, talking out like a deer in the headlights to the audience about a burst of things that I have to grapple with immediately. I’m very grateful that he made my job much easier.”

Watch a clip of Renee’s performance in the film version of Hamilton below.

Now, let us know if you are planning to watch the highly-anticipated Hamilton over the fourth of July weekend via the comment section and if you are excited to see Renee in her award-winning winning in it?

B&B’s Supervising Producer, Casey Kasprzyk Shares: “Just Finished Viewing Our First Produced Episode Since Starting Production Back Up!”

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.

‘Strahan, Sara and Keke’ Canceled by ABC; Show Aired In Timeslot That Once Housed ‘All My Children’

No matter a network tries to do, replacing All My Children, which ran for 41 years on ABC has remained as everyone that follows the world of daytime drama knows, problematic.  Now come word via Page Six that Strahan, Sara and Keke has been canceled.

The show hosted by Michael Strahan, Sara Haines and Keke Palmer if you recall, replaced the foodie show, The Chew which ran for seven seasons and was the first show to air in the timeslot that belonged for over four decades to All My Children. 

Back in March of this year, Strahan, Sara and Keke took a break to make way for ABC’s News  Pandemic: What You Need to Know, a daily coronavirus report anchored by Amy Robach, Dr. Jen Ashton and sometimes TJ Holmes.

However, because the show did well in that two-week experimental run it morphed into GMA 3: What You Need to Know.  The new version of the show also talked about hot topics in the current news cycle, as well.

ABC’s Catherine McKenzie began producing the “GMA3” show four months ago and the network officially announced her as Executive Producer of the program on Thursday.

While ABC has yet to officially announce Strahan, Sara and Keke is over, a spokesperson told Page Six: “We’re proud of our teams at ‘SSK’ and ‘GMA3’ and how quickly they transitioned to producing a daily show to give people the news and information they need during an unprecedented pandemic, and conversations continue about how the show will evolve in the months ahead.”

It appears that Strahan, Sara and Keke won’t be returning; the future as many of their staff have transitioned over to ‘GMA 3’ with producers from ABC News Live, (the streaming division), helmed by McKenzie.

As for the futures of Strahan, Haines and Palmer; Strahan will continues to host Good Morning America, and they are all actively under contract with the network.

So, what do you think of  ‘Strahan, Sara and Kek’e being replaced by ‘GMA 3: What You  Need to Know’?  How long do you think that show will last in the timeslot once taken up by residents of Pine Valley? Comment below.
